Alec Torelli is from Orange County, California. He has been a successful online cash-game pro for years as "traheho," but after winning the Full Tilt Online Poker Series III main event for more than $288,000, he gained respect as a killer multi-table tournament player, as well.
His skills aren't solely relegated to the online arena, either; he raked in $39,730 for finishing eighth in the 2006 Aruba Poker Classic $5,000 event. At the 2008 World Series of Poker, he narrowly missed his first bracelet. He placed second in the $10,000 heads-up championship but snagged almost $337,000 for his efforts.
